The Steelers have ruled out rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett with a concussion.

Pickett’s helmet bounced off the ground after he was hit by Devin White with 7:02 remaining in the third quarter. He immediately left the game.

Pickett initially was evaluated in the sideline medical tent before walking to the training room for further evaluation.

He went 11-of-18 for 67 yards and threw his first career touchdown.

Mitch Trubisky has replaced him and is 11-of-18 for 67 yards and a touchdown.

Bucs tight end Cameron Brate also won’t return today after being placed on a backboard and leaving on a stretcher. Brate took a shot to the head and neck on 6-yard catch.

The Steelers lead the Bucs 20-12 in the fourth quarter.

  1. Bad strategy by the Bucs. Knock out the rookie QB so that Tomlin will be forced to replace him with someone better.

  2. I don’t believe he had a concussion I don’t care what they say I don’t believe it
